Come meet the new "you" on January 14

If you've been to Peter's Path Store, you probably know that owners Christine Peters and Ronda Balfe know how to create totally chic little outfits for you. But did you know they're gaining quite the reputation for putting together a fabulous soiree, too?

I'm talking, kitten, about fabulously fun networking events disguised as parties. Can you believe the nerve of these ladies? And they're scheduled at tres' convenient times for working moms, entrepreneuresses (is that a word?) and girlies who just want to have fun, meet other successful women and learn new stuff.

This next "special invitation" event --OK, OK. I will concede dear reader that you won't be receiving a gold embossed calligraphy invite nor will you be greeted at the door by a steroid induced bouncer selectively deciding what divas are allowed to enter under PP's yellow awning. But when you see the eclectic crowd of smart and chic women, you'll be glad you were privy to the hottest party this side of Hollywood. And you'll feel sorry for the photogs at TMZ who missed it!

Oh, but back to what I was saying...The next event is January 14 at 6 p.m.

That's when the entouragette (is that a word?) welcomes the darlingly dynamic duo of Professional Organizer Kim Cossette and Personal Trainer Elizabeth Jaeger.

The theme of the party is "A New Year. A New You." And here's why....Psssssst. Stay with me.

You see Kim is a professional organizer. And she will help you tame your life gone a little amess sista' starting in the heart of things. Your kitchen. Then, there's Elizabeth, a personal trainer who knows just a few things about eating right and how to put your derrier in gear. Together, these damsels will show you how to take charge in 2010 and change your life! "Viva la difference" you'll exclaim as you learn how to create a vision of how you want your life to be. And how to make the right choices to bring about your intentional vision.

Now, I know what you're thinking. This get together sounds oh so amazing. But can I afford it?

But of course, dahling. While a 600 sq ft studio in NYC is a cool mil. And a BMW is 50K+. You, m' dear are priceless. And this function is FREE!!!! And did I mention, you could win a 12 week nutritional coaching prize?

Plus there'll be wine to sip and cheese to nibble on as you sit on vintage furniture and show off your mojo to all your new friends at Peter's Path Store. No purchase necessary. Except don't blame us if you happen to fall in love with a pair of skinny jeans or a fluffy sweater all the same. You're on your own when it comes to your pocketbook, shop girl.

Peters Path Store. The perfect "mother-daughter" or "friend-friend" holiday outing

One thing I've always loved about the holidays was spending time with my mom.

My first memories of shopping with her begin circa late 1960's on the 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver.

One year, she took me to this beautiful boutique--there were no Walmarts back then. We picked out a double breasted wool coat in ivory with a matching faux fur collar. As we walked out of the store at night, I recall the glistening holiday lights and the yuletide music being sung by carolers. It was a magical time. I think we went to Woolworth's lunch counter for a shake afterwards. Probably cost my mom 50 cents.

In later years during and after college, my mother and I would head to Tamarac Square (also in Denver) where we'd shop for ourselves and others just a bit, too. The afternoon would usually end at a little french bistro nibbling on croissant sandwiches while sipping coffee and Kahlua topped with whipped cream.

Skip ahead to current days. I've moved to Georgia and my mom still lives in Colorado. I miss her so much and wish we could be together this holiday season. I know exactly what we'd do. First, we'd head to downtown historic Lawrenceville for lunch. We'd find a great parking space, because street parking is free in downtown. We'd either go to Dominicks for pasta and vino or head to McCrays for a soup and sandwich. Next, we'd stroll along the square in Lawrenceville and visit the Aurora Theatre Festival of Trees. Finally, we'd walk down to our main destination at 164 E. Crogan Street. We'd open the door under the yellow awning and enter Peter's Path Store, a boutique like no other for fashion conscious women and girls who won't settle for anything less but tres chic!

For instance, did you know that Peter's Path has beautiful wooden hand painted rings for only 7.00? Or what about soft cami's, oh so perfectly layered under a blouse or jacket as a holiday outfit accent. They're only 12.00 each. Unbelievable. It's these kind of prices and lots of beautiful items, that will keep you enthralled at every turn.

Peter's Path is truly like going into a candy shop for the funky, creative, fashion conscious girl at heart.

You can just thank Christine Peters and Ronda Balfe who both have a certain knack for finding special items from the funky to a twist on comfort and style. While this may sound like a cliche', Peter's Path has something for every girl. Be it an Allegria mary jane, LTB jeans, Johnny Was embroidered tops or hip baseball hats. I know my Mom would buy me an outfit at Peter's Path and she'd end up with something funky too. She's now 70, but so ageless and youthfully spirited as all of us girls should be! So, Peter's Path is the perfect place for her too, with its easy going sweaters and such.

My mom would also appreciate that Peter's Path does complimentary gift wrapping, too. She'd say, "you don't get that kind of service at Macy's." Yes, mothers just have a way of knowing everything, don't they? So I hope you get to spend some time with yours this holiday season. And that you two get to visit Peter's Path together. Not only will you find the best stocking stuffers and holiday outfits, you'll also enjoy the atmosphere and holiday spirit that's Peter's Path Store. Since, my mom's not here, I guess I'll just have to treat myself to Peter's Path solo or bring a friend. See you there and happy holidays.
